New Arrivals – Old Particular Single Cask Releases from Douglas Laing at Hard To Find Whisky – Scotch Whisky News

April 7th, 2021

DOUGLAS LAING’S OLD PARTICULAR

Old Particular is a particularly unique series of individually hand-selected, aged Single Cask Single Malts and Single Grains from all over Scotland. Each is bottled exactly the way the Distiller intended: without colouring or chill-filtration, and at high alcohol strength. This combination allows the cask to retain the naturally present oils, fats and enzymes in the spirit that enhance the quality of the nose, the mouthfeel and flavour profile of the Whisky. Keeping the spirit “as natural as it gets” allows you to experience the Whisky straight from the cask, transporting you to the distillery warehouse with every sip.

Whisky Wednesday Reviews Adelphi Blended Whisky 40% – Scotch Whisky News

April 7th, 2021

Blended whisky is good. If you don’t like it then that’s fine. But, hear me out. What if it had some ‘funk’ to it? Some real character that could cut through and rival single malts at a similar price point…with a little more fun?

Adelphi Blended Whisky!

£24 with shipping, combining Speyside, Islay and Campbeltown single malts, with grain and then matured in Solera vats. The funk shines! It’s sweet and bright but has some dirty and coastal tones! Those west coast whiskies really pushing peat but also letting some charm shine through. Recommended by a viewer and a great addition to the whisky room.

Colorada Fresh Pineapples is leading the scene on export of MD-2 pineapples to European markets.

LA CHORERRA, PANAMá OESTE, PANAMA, April 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- A Panama-based farm is fast winning over the pineapple market in Europe. Titled “Colorada Fresh Pineapples'', the farm has emerged as the leading exporter of premium pineapple fruit shipped by air to European countries. Located in Panama’s pineapple heartland, La Chorerra, the farm supplies the famous Golden Extra Sweet MD-2 pineapples.

The recent rise of Colorada Fresh Pineapples in the European markets marks a significant step as premium fruit shipped by air only represents less than 1 percent of the overall freight movements by weight. The demand for the air shipped fruit is primarily constrained by the costs, as the air cargo services can be up to 16 times the cost of transporting the goods by sea.

Review: 2017 Beronia Rioja Crianza

2017 Beronia Rioja Crianza

Christopher Null April 6, 2021

Beronia‘s widely available Rioja Crianza is now going to be even more accessible: screw-capped half-bottles are now on the market. This 2017 (the price below is for a 750ml) is a blend of 94% tempranillo, 5% garnacha, and 1% mazuelo.

The wine is approachable but fairly innocuous, offering an attack of cherry, rhubarb, and raspberry, but filtered through an earthy, tobacco-laden character. A bit balsamic on the finish, the wine is tart and lightly tannic, with a finish running gently to licorice and some clove notes. It’s a balanced wine but not overwhelming in complexity. Solid at the price.

Beverages, AC makers to face challenges with second Covid-19 wave

With the second wave of the pandemic hitting the country, summer-centric product makers like beverage and air-conditioner makers may be in for another challenging season. Industry observers are concerned about the subdued out-of-home sales for the beverage industry. AC makers are also likely to witness impact on demand due to restrictions in some states.

For impulse product categories such as beverages, March to June contributes over 50 per cent of the annual volumes and a significant chunk of this comes from the out-of-home channel which includes restaurants and hotels. However, beverage players said that the scorching temperatures and strong in-home consumption are expected to continue to be the growth drivers for the industry.

Mohit Malhotra, CEO, Dabur India Ltd said: “Consumption of packaged juices and beverages has bounced back in the recent quarters in line with the growing consumer need for health. While the HORECA (Hotels, Restaurants, events and catering) channel continues to be impacted, the early onset of summers is helping drive growth for the beverage industry.”

Nadia Chauhan, Joint Managing Director & CMO, Parle Agro said, “We are aware that out-of-home consumption is likely to take a hit once again during this period, however, we hope that, like last year, we will witness a surge in various SKUs more for in-home consumption. Across the country, owing to favorable weather conditions, we are currently witnessing a consumption boom.”

“On a positive note, the implemented restrictions are only in Maharashtra at the moment. With time, we will be able to better analyse the situation. Fortunately, unlike last year, things are more in control and everyone is able to work around business requirements. Our distribution too is being effectively managed,” she added.

Review: High Camp Firelight 375 Flask

High Camp Firelight 375 Flask

Christopher Null April 6, 2021

Headed into the great outdoors this summer? Bring your cocktail to go with High Camp’s Firelight Flash — available in a 375ml version (reviewed here) or a 750ml option (which is pictured). The 375 version comes in your choice of five finishes ranging from rose gold to gunmetal; the 750 has three finish options.

The flash is designed to look a bit like a thermos, but the trick is that the top (which serves as a tumbler) pops off with a quick twist: It’s held on magnetically, not via a more traditional closure system. (The 750ml version has two tumblers, so you can share.) Underneath you’ll find the flash proper, which has a more classic screw-on stopper to keep your beverage safe and sound. The vacuum-insulated stainless steel design keeps things as cool (or as warm) as your Hydroflask, as does the hefty tumbler portion, which includes some gentle grooves to ensure it doesn’t slip from your fingers. It’s definitely one of the most elegant on-the-go flash systems this reviewer has encountered. Heck, I might take to using it even if a tent and campfire aren’t in the cards.

Where are the Workers?

Help with Restaurant Staffing is Here

Restaurants need good quality hourly employees

This service helps Restaurant owners resolve staffing problems”

— Elliot Mason

LACONIA, NH, UNITED STATES, April 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- COVID 19 took a toll on restaurants and still is. One of the concerns we didn’t anticipate was a lack of employees. When employment is at one the highest rates ever, how is it possible there are not enough employees? Stimulus checks and the unemployment system was intended to assist workers who were let go during COVID restrictions has left a shortage of employees for restaurant franchises. Previous employees have chosen to stay on unemployment or use their stimulus rather than return to work.

This trend began when people felt safer at home or stayed home to help their children e-learn. However, this trend continues as restaurants reopen and it has left the restaurant industry short on workers. As restaurants reopen to full capacity, they are struggling to fill their employee schedule with good quality employees.

Kanekt 365 has answered this need for over five years. Jeffrey Morin CEO of Kanekt 365 says, “Restaurants outsource their phone ordering system to us. We hire call center agents on their behalf thereby reducing their staffing costs. These new members of their team are Kanekt employees that we interview, train, and manage.” Kanekt knows from years within the pizza call center industry that using a call center reduces labor costs for a storefront restaurant approximately 3-5%.

Oldest ever Littlemill whisky expression released

The oldest release to date from Scotland's Littlemill Distillery has been announced.

Littlemill Testament is designed to celebrate the distillery's legacy in the Scotch whisky industry and is presented in a decanter that includes remnants of the original distillery master's house, which dates back to 1772. These fragments include reclaimed glass, slate, wood and stone from the roof and parts of the building's windows, walls and floors.

The liquid for the release has been taken from a single distillation date in October 1976. It was re-casked to American oak hogsheads in 1996, before a final four-month maturation in first-fill Oloroso sherry hogsheads that was overseen by master blender Michael Henry.

Just 250 of the Glencairn Crystal decanters will be made available, with a recommended retail price of £8,000. Each comes housed in a bespoke handmade cabinet, complete with a dress stopper made from sandstone taken from the remains of the Littlemill distillery.

For collectors who wish to leave their decanter untouched, each comes with a unique code allowing the owner to claim 5cl of the liquid. An additional 5cl can be claimed at a future date using the same code, should a second owner wish to sample it.

Las Vegas home prices rise again, another all-time high

There seems to be no stopping the soaring existing home prices in the Las Vegas area.

The median sale price for a home in Las Vegas rocketed to $363,000 in March, another new all-time record, according to the Las Vegas Realtors trade group.

The figure represented a 14% jump from March 2020 and a month-over-month increase of 2% from February’s median price of $355,000.

Aldo Martinez, president of the LVR, said in a news release that it’s likely the ceiling hasn’t been reached.

“At the rate we’re going, we could see even greater gains in home prices and sales next month, since the housing market stalled briefly last April before roaring back since then,” Martinez said.

Mastering the Corpse Reviver No. 2 With Alicia Perry






“A great Corpse Reviver should be refreshing yet delicate,” says Alicia Perry, general manager of San Diego’s Polite Provisions. Yet, that light touch doesn’t mean it’s a wimpy drink: “It should still pack a punch that should wake you up in the morning.”

Famed as an eye-opener brunch drink or hangover remedy, the Corpse Reviver No. 2 is one of a pair by that name to debut in The Savoy Cocktail Book in 1930. The No. 1 version (brandy, apple brandy and sweet vermouth) is usually passed over for the No. 2, beloved for its bracing quality as well as its equal-parts formula, traditionally a mix of gin, lemon juice, Cointreau and Lillet Blanc, accented with a dash of herbaceous absinthe.

For Perry’s take on the Corpse Reviver, which took top honors in PUNCH’s blind taste test, she strays slightly from the usual equal-parts template. The classic was “a bit too dry, a bit too astringent” for her personal taste. To remedy this, she adds a quarter-ounce of simple syrup to soften the overall effect, then nudges the gin component a little higher to compensate for the added sugar.

“Bumping up the gin to balance out the sweet—that was a moment for me when I knew I had something to be excited about,” she recalls. “This drink is all about balance.”

Non-alcoholic brand Stryyk signs distribution deals in Canada and Netherlands

The maker of non-alcoholic spirits brand Strykk has secured new distribution deals in the Netherlands and Canada.

Elegantly Spirited Ltd has partnered with spirits specialist Anker Amsterdam Spirits BV (AAS) and Canadian food and drinks importer Importations Tribeca Inc to manage the distribution of its Stryyk portfolio: Stryyk Not G*n, Stryyk Not R*m and Stryyk Not V*dka. 

AAS is one of the largest independent drinks wholesalers in the Netherlands with a nationwide customer base across the off and on-trade. Initially it will focus on the take-home market, but as soon as  the pandemic allows, it will begin working with the bartending community to establish Stryyk in the on-trade in key cities.

Importations Tribeca supplies across Canada, directly and via wholesalers, covering all channels including the Canadian Liquor Boards. It will be promoting and distributing the Stryyk portfolio through its subsidiary Club Zéro Alcool, which was launched in October 2020 and is dedicated to alcohol-free spirits and cocktails.

Alex Carlton, Elegantly Spirited CEO and founder of Stryyk, said: "Stryyk is growing strongly now and looking forward to a bumper 2021 as consumers embrace low and no alcohol. Stryyk resonates as it is designed for drinkers as a spirits alternative, not a non-alcoholic drink. It gives people their favourite flavour profiles and drinking rituals and the chance to take a break from alcohol during the evening or have a night off altogether."
